Chattanooga leaders announce vision for world-class Health & Wellness District

Leaders in the city that has become a national model for mid-sized Innovation Districts have just released a new vision and roadmap for health and wellness innovation.

In a lengthy article this past weekend in the Chattanooga Times Free Press, some details of the plan to establish a world-class Health & Wellness District along the 3rd and 4th Street Corridor in Chattanooga were revealed. The concept involves creating a “first class health care and education destination, a model neighborhood for wellness and healthy living, and an innovation hub that fuels research and job growth. Over time, this District will serve as an engine for innovation, growth, and opportunity for the city, county, and the region.”

According to the article, a delegation recently visited “Cincinnati’s Uptown Innovation Corridor (which) is considered a national model for specialized urban districts.” You can learn more about the vision by reviewing this Power Point (Chattanooga Health and Wellness District PP).
